Love Don't Come Free
You can rock and think, too! 'Love Don't Come Free,' the new break-out CD from Seattle singer-songwriter Jack Mathers, is becoming the most talked about record in years! Mixing the hard truths, 'Love Don't Come Free,' Jack starts at the Garden of Eden, and goes backwards!! 'Millions of years to me, to Him's day one, two, or three' suggests the obvious mixing link in all the religious backbiting. The epic 'Weeping Willow' is one of the sad true stories of the southern United States in the twentieth century, the chronicling of Strom Thurmond, who went on to become the longest serving senator in U.S. history, it relates the hidden love shared under the weeping willow and it's many consequences. The man, who fathered an inter-racial child, and then ran a race-based campaign for the United States presidency 'all the while denying his own daughter her humanity' is a heartbreaking story with both families keeping the secret for almost a century. 'The weeping willow cries for the love lost over a century.' 'Heartbreak Faster Than the Speed of Sound' is the story of the Columbia space shuttle, with it's member, David Brown: 'So down to earth you became a clown.' Again, the larger questions are asked 'Love Don't Come Free' doesn't just rock, with great melodies it compels you to think, and dance, too.
